Hawk moth

I found this little beast on a trip to Corsica and took it home. I think it's a Convolvulus Hawk-moth. It's quite large, with a wingspan of about 10 to 12 cm. It originally comes from the UK, but it's spreading in Europe and Africa.
It's very pretty and its greyish hues make it perfect for graphite.


  1. We have them here too, Barbara, though perhaps not quite this one. Certainly hawk moths, though, and you did a wonderful job...
